The Lizard to be Spidey 4’s One and Only Villain? Hopefully.

Looks like the Spidey 4 rumor train is moving at full speed now, what with the Raimster set to start directing this thing soon for a 2011 release. We already know that actor Dylan Baker has confirmed that his character, Spidey’s one-armed professor Curt Connors will return for Spidey 4, but we don’t know in what capacity — another limited cameo, or something more? According to the guys at MarketSaw, it’s definitely something more.

Here’s what they said:

We all pretty much knew that either The Lizard and/or Carnage would be in this movie and now we have word that it will be The Lizard ONLY. No multiple villains. Again, strong source here. Of course, things could change – but it is highly doubtful.

This is definitely good news, especially for everyone who thought having no less than three villains in the last Spidey film was a tad too much (which might just be everyone). One villain will allow for more character development, both in Peter Parker’s life and in Curt Connors’ ala the excellent “Spider-Man 2″.

Here’s hoping MarketSaw’s source is, indeed, strong and correct.

Here, Spidey, Spidey...
